    I'll probably end up getting some weld on beadlocks I think.

    I'll post these here for obvious reasons. I really have no idea what any of this stuff goes for, so if you're interested shoot me an offer. (or just tell me what they're worth pretty please:eek:)

    I'll be in Colorado on the 8th, Indiana on the 22nd ish, so I can bring this crap out there.

    All parts are off that '78 Ford Dana 60.

    Keep the carrier and put a full-time locker in it and lock the hubs when you want it locked...otherwise gears aren't worth $50 had mine on pirate for $50 for months now. And the carrier is worth about $60-$70 if you sell it.

    Well shit, feel like an idiot... I thought the locker replaced the carrier haha. I'm planning on a detroit in the front and ARB in the rear.

    Thanks, just went out and tossed the scrap stuff. :eek:

    Yeah it really sucks to spend that much on an axle to throw most of it away :( The good news is you have the most sought after Dana 60 housing around! :D I need to get my ARB's installed... :rolleyes:

    Dont go with a detroit. I detroit does replace the carrier, but when they break it gets really pricey, really quick.

    Lunchbox locker for the front. I had already broken a Lockright (Toy 8") so I am giving Spartan a try this time. Theres also Aussie as well.

    Aussie has worked really well for me. It's just a tad noisier over the lockrites I've noticed. I personally couldn't care less about noise. But I'd recommend it. They're priced right too

    Lockright and Spartan do. Spartan lockers have been getting great reviews on Pirate for holding up to some serious abuse.

    Spartans are definitely stronger than Lockright and cost about the same. Having installed both personally, I am happy I have the spartan in my D60.

    3/8th plate is beefy that reminds me to start designing my 9" skids and pinion guard.

    That must have hurt when the suspension tried to rebound and the poor winch line tightened up
